Introducing Hugo

I’ve started using Hugo for site generation for my blog. Too long, I’ve let it go to the weeds. Even though I’ve taken some good precautions on the host, I’ve failed to keep wordpress up-to-date. This has allowed script-kiddies and others with more time than quality of life to repurpose it. No longer! With Hugo, I do site generation localy and upload static HTML. What does this mean for you? Faster page loads, and content that I actually produced.

Sunday. We weren’t really sure what we wanted to do today, but we had talked about doing one of the “bus to bus” walks in Brighton where you could take a bus to one of the stops and then do a country walk in the Sussex downs to somewhere else that a bus runs, and catch that back into town. As a family, we’d done the Ditchling Beacon to Devil’s Dyke walk once.

Saturday, we awoke late after a mixed night’s sleep. We ate our breakfast procured from Waitrose the day before. Yogurt and blueberries for myself while Sam and Carolyn had Muffins with Bonne Mammon, clementines and milk. We confirmed that trains to Lewes were frequent and headed up to the station. We got our tickets there and boarded a Southern “local” train with a few stops before we even got to Lewes.

Alas, there was no day 1 post, so this will have to suffice for both, at least for now. I wish I were more observant about the mundane, because in some important ways, I think it’s the mudane that matters far more than the extrordinary. At least in story telling. We left Philadelphia Thursday evening. We flew from the international terminal at PHL on USAirways. We were originally supposed to fly from A6 at one end of the terminal, and shortly after we settled down there, an announcement came over the PA that there was a gate change and we needed to switch to A23 at the other end of the terminal.

Or “How to proofread a job posting”. I came across this posting on the python group I’m a member of on (in?) Linked In. The first typo, was a bit awkward, but I could see how it would happen during an editing/revision session when that session wasn’t followed by a proofreading. “Our client is a leader in the worldwide leader”. So, what you’re saying is they lead? But what actually cracked me up was the simple substitution of a “t” where a “d” should go.

About 20 years ago, my grandfather “(Grand) Pop” died. I still remember packing up his model trains with my dad and some of the rest of the family. The specific bit of his legacy for me. They hadn’t been unpacked since. Instead, they followed me from place to place still in the boxes we packed back then. For the past several years, they were stored with the inlaws who recently kindly suggested that maybe it was time for them to come home.

VP Operations

I started a new job last week. I’m the VP Operations for Perrone Robotics. There are many things that I’m responsible for. Internal IT and Network Infrastructure, Quality Assurance, Release Management and Customer Deployments. It’s a handful, and like any good job, understaffed. But it’s going to be fun. And I’m going to learn lots. I’m quite excited by the undertaking. Not to mention, it means we get to stay in Charlottesville a bit longer 🙂
